                                EXECUTIVE ORDER D—280—30
                         Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156
                                      of the Vehicle Code

                                 AirTek, Inc. (d.b.a. Catco)             |
            "Series 612000 OBD II Compliant Three—way Catalytic Converter"

 WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and Section 2222(h), Title 13, California Code of
 Regulations (hereafter "CCR"), authorize the California Air Resources Board and its
 Executive Officer to exempt new aftermarket catalytic converters from the prohibitions of
 Vehicle Code Section 27156.

 WHEREAS, AirTek, Inc. (AirTek) of 4410 W. 378 Avenue, Hobart, Indiana 46342, has
 applied to the Air Resources Board for exemption from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code
 Section 27156 to market its new aftermarket Series 612000 three—way catalytic converter
 (TWC) for installation on selected 1995 through 2003 model year Toyota passenger cars
 equipped with on—board diagnostic II (OBD—II) systems as specified in Appendix D—280—30
 and incorporated herein. The Series 612000 TWC will be used for multiple catalytic
 converter exhaust system applications for selected Toyota passenger cars listed in
 Appendix D—280—30. The catalytic converter should be sold as a system that includes the
 front and rear units, where applicable.

 Series 612000 TWC may also be installed on non—OBD II vehicles (1995 and older) similar in
 engine and exhaust configuration to those listed in Appendix D—280—30.

  WHEREAS, pursuant to the authority vested in the Executive Officer by Health and Safety
  Code Section 39515 and in the Chief, Mobile Source Operations Division by Health and
_ Safety Code Section 39516 and Executive Order G—02—003, Air Resources Board finds that
  the above aftermarket catalytic converter complies with the California Vehicle Code
  Section 27156 and Title 13, California Code of Regulations, Section 2222(h). The emissions
  performance of the catalytic converter was based on durability bench—aging by Southwest
 Research Institute, San Antonio, Texas, using Air Resources Board—modified RAT—A bench—
 aging cycle for 75 hours, as specified in the "Optional Evaluation Procedures for New
 Aftermarket Non—original Equipment Catalytic Converters Equipped with On—Board Diagnostic
 II (OBD II) Systems."                                                                             ‘

 WHEREAS, previous emissions and OBD 11 compatibility tests conducted by AirTek, Inc.
 using a vehicle of a weight classification and exhaust configuration similar to those listed in
 Appendix D—280—30 and certified to Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) standards resulted in the
 issuance of Executive Order D—280—15, it was determined that the installation of Series
 612000 TWC on the vehicles listed in Appendix D—280—30 meets the requirements of
 California regulations for aftermarket catalytic converters.

 [T |S HEREBY RESOLVED that the above catalytic converter is exempt from the prohibitions
 in Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on the vehicles listed in Appendix D—280—30
 subject to the following conditions:


No changes are permitted to the catalytic converter as described in the
application for exemption. Any changes to the catalytic converter or any of its
components, and other factors addressed in this order must be evaluated and
approved by the Air Resources Board prior to marketing in California.

Marketing of the catalytic converter using identifications other than those shown
in the exemption application, and in this Executive Order, or marketing of the
catalytic converter for application other than the ones shown in this Executive
Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air
Resources Board. Exemption of these products shall not be construed as an
exemption to sell, offer for sale, or advertise any components of the catalytic
converter as individual devices.

Any oral or written references to this Executive Order or its content by AirTek,
Inc., its principals, agents, employees, distributors, dealers, or other
representatives must include the disclaimer that the Executive Order or the
exemption it provides is not an endorsement or approval of any emission
reduction claims for the catalytic converter and is only a finding that the
catalytic converter is exempt from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code
Section 27156.

AirTek, Inc.‘s installation instructions for the new catalytic converter must
conform to requirements in Paragraphs | and X of the "Optional Evaluation
Procedures for New Aftermarket Non—original Equipment Catalytic Converters
Equipped with On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) Systems."

Upon installation, the catalytic converter must carry a manufacturer‘s warranty
for 50,000 miles on the substrates and 50,000 miles or five years on the shell
and end pipes.                                                '

AirTek, Inc. and its vendors may not advertise the new aftermarket catalytic
converter as a "performance, high or easy flow" catalytic converter or use any
phrase that could make them appear to perform better than an OEM catalytic
converter.

The new aftermarket catalytic converter substrate may not be sold or supplied
to a third party by AirTek, its associates, vendors, other businesses, and
individuals associated with AirTek, to be assembled in a different facility and
marketed under this Executive Order.

Any marketing arrangement of the new aftermarket catalytic converter by a third
party, which involves the use of packaging identification different from the ones
described in this Executive Order must be approved by Air Resources Board
prior to shipment.

AirTek must submit the required quality audit and production quantity reports
for its aftermarket catalytic converter semi—annually, covering the periods
January 1 through June 30, and July 1 through December 31.
